LEXINGTON, S.C. – An 11-year-old male who attends Pelion Middle School has been charged with threatening a student after deputies determined he referred to killing another student Friday.

A Lexington County deputy interviewed the student, whose name will not be released because he’s under the age of 18, at the school before releasing him to the custody of his parents.

The student will appear in Lexington County Family Court at a later date.
